I am 23, but find myself drawn to clothes/styles that are typically for older people. Cardigans, mom jeans, Dansko clogs, frumpy old-man sweaters and glasses -- the list goes on.
I would like to embrace being a relatively slender, relatively fit, relatively attractive twenty-something and stop dressing like my mother and/or grandfather, but I don't know what to look for/how to do it. I dislike the busy prints that seem to be in vogue these days, and would prefer a more classic/timeless look.
1. Is it possible to be timeless/classic and not frumpy?
1a. If so, how? Links to specific items or outfits would be appreciated.
2. If you are a big-busted, small-waisted ladyperson, how do you find shirts that flatter both the top and bottom half of your torso while maintaining a workplace-appropriate look (i.e., not too tight, not too cleavage-y)?
3. Ideally, I would like to turn heads without skanking it up. How to go about this?
